Ministries involved in serving parishes:

Open AllClose All
  Office of Evangelization

The Office of Evangelization, inspired by the New Evangelization, provides leadership, vision, and resources to Catholic parishes and groups for calling, forming, making, and sending intentional disciples. The Office invites people to enter into a deeper, more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ and his Church. It calls all Catholics to be evangelized and become disciples, so they can then spread God’s Word to others and make new disciples.

The Office promotes the Church's call to a New Evangelization by providing vision and formation for leaders; coordinating archdiocesan evangelization initiatives; assisting parishes in new and creative efforts for making disciples; energizing parish communities for mission, and reaching out to those who are no longer active Catholics.

  Brew City Catholic

Brew City Catholic inspires young adults to love God and their neighbor as bold Catholic disciples. As the young adult ministry initiative of the Evangelization office, Brew City Catholic engages a commonly disengaged generation by serving college students and adults in their 20s and 30s.

Through dynamic missionary outreach to college campuses, Brew City Catholic serves over 1,200 college students at the public universities of UW-Milwaukee, UW-Whitewater, and Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE), through a framework of intentional and relational ministry by offering Sunday Mass, prayer opportunities, bible study small groups, and student household and pastoral one-on-one mentoring. Through our support of parishes’ young adult ministries and Archdiocesan-wide outreach to adults in their 20s and 30s, we serve over 2,000 young adults each year. Programs include retreats, conferences, and social events that enable them to connect to community, Christ, and the Catholic Church.

  Office for Worship

The Office for Worship is a resource for the liturgical life of the parishes, providing consultation and training for parish staff, lay leaders, liturgical ministers, Rite of Christian Initiation teams (RCIA), pastoral musicians, and parish liturgy committees. More than 6,000 cantors, choir members and musicians are involved in music ministry. The Office for Worship staff coordinates archdiocesan liturgical celebrations through which the people and parishes of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee can unite their voices in praise of God and be moved to do the same in their own communities.
